    2. Simultaneous 6-channel optical coherence tomography using a high-power telescope-less polygon-based swept laser in dual amplifier configuration

      Simultaneous 6-channel optical coherence tomography using a high-power telescope-less polygon-based swept laser in dual amplifier configuration
      Multichannel optical coherence tomography (MOCT) imaging is demonstrated using a high-power wavelength-swept laser source. The main benefit of MOCT is faster image acquisition rates without a corresponding increase in the laser tuning speed. The wavelength-swept laser was constructed using a compact telescope-less polygon-based filter in Littman arrangement. High output power, necessary for MOCT, was achieved by incorporating two serial semiconductor optical amplifiers in a ring laser cavity in Fourier domain ...

    4. In situ 24 kHz coherent imaging of morphology change in laser percussion drilling

      In situ 24 kHz coherent imaging of morphology change in laser percussion drilling
      We observe sample morphology changes in real time 24 kHz during and between percussion drilling pulses by integrating a low-coherence microscope into a laser micromachining platform. Nonuniform cut speed and sidewall evolution in stainless steel are observed to strongly depend on assist gas. Interpulse morphology relaxation such as hole refill is directly imaged, showing dramatic differences in the material removal process dependent on pulse duration/peak power (s/0.1 ...

    5. Developing dual core ytterbium doped fiber ring laser in Fourier domain mode locked operation for swept-source optical coherence tomography

      Developing dual core ytterbium doped fiber ring laser in Fourier domain mode locked operation for swept-source optical coherence tomography
      We demonstrate high efficiency and wide bandwidth gain in a Ytterbium doped fiber amplifier. The highpowered amplifier has potential applications for use with a swept-source fiber ring laser in multi-channel optical coherence tomography (OCT) system. The ring cavity design includes a 976nm pumped dual core Yb doped fiber as the gain medium, where a rotating polygon mirror is used as a wavelength-sweeping filter for this source. The amplified spontaneous emission ...

    6. Cascaded Raman fiber laser in Fourier domain mode lock operation

      Cascaded Raman fiber laser in Fourier domain mode lock operation
      In this study, a cascaded Raman fiber laser in Fourier domain mode lock operation (FDML) is presented. This laser utilizes a Ytterbium doped twin core pump laser source at 1109 nm. The pump light is directed to a cascaded Raman cavity, which consists of multiple cascaded fiber Bragg grating pairs and 3.86 km of dispersion compensation fiber, which provides Raman gain. The output wavelength of a cascaded Raman laser ...

    8. Wavelength-swept spectral and pulse shaping utilizing hybrid Fourier domain modelocking by fiber optical parametric and erbium-doped fiber amplifiers

      Wavelength-swept spectral and pulse shaping utilizing hybrid Fourier domain modelocking by fiber optical parametric and erbium-doped fiber amplifiers
      We report the first Fourier domain modelocked (FDML) laser constructed using optical parametric amplifier (OPA) in conjunction with an erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA), centered at ~1555nm, to the best of our knowledge. We utilize a one-pump OPA and a C-band EDFA in serial configuration with a tunable Fabry-Perot interferometer to generate a hybrid FDML spectrum. Results demonstrate a substantially better spectral shape, output power and stability than individual configurations, with ...

    10. Limiting factors to the OCT axial resolution
for in-vivo imaging of human and rodent retina in the 1060nm wavelength range

      Limiting factors to the OCT axial resolution
for in-vivo imaging of human and rodent retina in the 1060nm wavelength range
      A computational model was developed to evaluate the limitations to the highest axial resolution, achievable with ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography (UHROCT) in the 1060nm wavelength region for in-vivo imaging of the human and rodent retina. The model considers parameters such as the wavelength dependent water absorption, the average length of the human and rodent eyes, and the power limitations for the imaging beam as defined in the ANSI standard ...

  2. About University of Toronto

    University of Toronto

    The University of Toronto (U of T) is a public research university in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The university's main campus, St. George, is located in Downtown Toronto surrounding Queen's Park and the Ontario Legislature. Its two other campuses, the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) and the University of Toronto at Mississauga (UTM, also informally referred to as "Erindale Campus"), are located in the eastern and western ends, respectively, of the Greater Toronto Area.   The institution was founded as King's College by John Strachan, and was granted its Royal Charter in 1827. Its name was changed to the University of Toronto in 1849, after it ended ties with the Church of England to become a secular institution. University College was created as a constituent college in 1853, and over time, the formerly independent Trinity College, Victoria University and St. Michael's College became federated with the university.  A 2006 university ranking by Newsweek International ranks the University of Toronto 1st in Canada, 18th worldwide, and 5th outside of the United States. Similar academic rankings consistently place the university among the world's best. Research at the University of Toronto has been responsible for the world's first electronic heart pacemaker, artificial larynx, single-lung transplant, nerve transplant, artificial pancreas, chemical laser, G-suit, the first practical electron microscope, the first cloning of T-cells, and the extraction of insulin."
